SUMMARY:

In 1996, author Milo Shapiro got a personalized holiday letter from a woman he couldn’t remember.

That would have been bad enough, but the letter was nothing more than this lady bragging endlessly about how great her family was. If he did know her, he also knew he couldn’t stand her!

So imagine the laughter when Milo discovered that the letter was a practical joke played on him by his friend Jennifer Coburn!

Milo decided to get even by having this ego-driven Maggie character write to Jennifer every Christmas for the next 13 years, becoming more icky and bizarre over time. This book is the resulting compilation of those letters.

Maggie has no idea that she offends people left and right as she intends to do good, but truthfully only serves her own self-focused grandeur. Her growing misuse of the English language is only further evidence of her disconnection with reality.

You’ll hate her and love her...but mostly you will laugh at her and the family forced to endure all that is Maggie Jennings.

TESTIMONIALS

“What a clever and unique approach to a book!  Using letters instead of prose, this odd sort of novel spells out the story of this dreadful woman who is so self-absorbed that only we as the readers can see how badly she undermines any good she tries to create.  She’s a train-wreck that we can’t look away from.  I laughed -- even gasped, at times -- at her misled efforts.  And boy, can this woman butcher the English language.  I loved it to the end!”

     —   Greg Godek,
            Author of "1001 Ways to Be Romantic"

 

     “I'm proud to have gotten this idea started, but never dreamed way back in 1996 what I was starting.  Milo has taken this lunatic woman to such a place of egotistical frenzy that it's hard for me to read sections to people because I just start laughing again.” 

      —  Jennifer Coburn,
             author of "Tales from the Crib" and "The Wife of Reilly"
